  1. Matrilocal societies wil be positively associated with practicing external warfare only (100)Divale, William Tulio - Migration, external warfare, and matrilocal residence, 1974 - 2 Variables

The main argument put forth predicts that matrilocal residence will develop in response to a need to break up fraternal interest groups that encourage internal war and instead encourage a pattern of external war that is more beneficial in populated regions with additional group migration.

  7. "Uxorilocal or matrilocal residence should be correlated with houses that have larger living floor areas than houses where avunculocal or patrilocal residence is practiced" (299)Divale, William Tulio - The causes of matrilocal residence: a cross-ethnohistorical survey, 1974 - 2 Variables

    Author proposes and presents evidence in support of the theory that most societies practice virilocal or patrilocal residence (this is the "normal" pattern" and that matrilocal residence is adopted when societies migrate to an already populated area.
